6.8 Promoting a Public Face for Scholarly Journals

Attacks on academic institutions, the humanities, and the knowledge they create have increasingly inspired scholars to make their work more accessible to the broader public. Many intend for their work to contribute to the pursuit of social justice and, as articulated by the African American Intellectual History Society, to "shed light upon and critically analyze issues of relevance to the public." While scholarly content exists on the network, it is often available only to subscribers. To some extent this limits the extent to which that knowledge can be truly networked. What appears in scholarly journals should also have a life outside scholarly journals. To that end our project has developed a guide to digital tools to enhance articles, repackage journal content to extend its audience, and creatively engage with readers. We aim to demonstrate the exciting possibilities offered by the digital environment to encourage broad thinking about research and scholarship and their role in society.
